    Virtual Workshop  Artful Couching                   

                        

                                      

     

    Learn the art of couching with yarns to create texture, flow and extra pizzazz.  We will first create our quilt sandwich and learn some quilting designs created using the walking foot.  We will then focus on mastering couching techniques.  Students will bring a striped batik or gradient fabric and coordinating yarn to make this 18″ x 45″ table runner size quilt.  This class will show you the many ways to use couching for definition and sparkle, by incorporating a variety of cording, yarn and metallic threads in your work.

    Virtual Lecture - From Inspiration to Art Process

    Virtual Workshop  Parts and Pieces                  

                      

                                                


    Most quilters have leftover blocks, partial or unfinished quilts, cherished vintage blocks, blocks from friends, cherished pieces of fabric – the list is endless. Stop saving and start sewing. Let’s take those parts and pieces and make them into a finished quilt.


    Farm your scraps and shop your stash. Bring all your leftover blocks, pieces, and special scraps to this class where you will learn how to use them to make new quilts. Your challenge is to take those seemingly mismatched, different sized, different colorway leftovers and create something new and exciting using the liberated tricks and techniques you will learn in this class.

    Virtual Workshop - Working Small                   

                

                          

                                          

    Small quilts are a fabulous way to learn about color, composition and technique.  You can work in a series or experiment without the time commitment of a larger quilt.  The studies can stand alone or be a loose road map for a full-size quilt.  This is a great way to use up scraps.

    Virtual Lecture - Making It Up As I Go Along


                                                      

    Join me for a guided tour of my quilting process as I describe the creative but, often unknown, path I travel as I make my quilts. Whether the quilt seed starts from a question, a sketch, my scraps or my imagination, I am never completely sure of where it will take me. I am truly often making it up as I go along.

    Virtual Workshop -  Going in Circles     

                

                                       

                                                


    Intermediate/Advanced

    This class will show you how to do a very unique technique of curved piecing.  Developed by your instructor, Marge Tucker, this is a more advanced class but anyone with a sense of adventure can do it!!

    These curved blocks give added movement and motion and work well with other improvisational techniques classes or with other abstract blocks.

    Students will learn free-form cutting and curved piecing techniques,

    Virtual Workshop - Eel Grass and Eddies         

         

                                  

    All levels

    Eel Grass and Eddies is a great class to "get your feet wet" with improvisational curved cutting and piecing.  Two fabric rectangles yield two reverse image blocks that can be using as is or cut into smaller units.  I also show variations that can be made with the blocks, as shown in the black and white quilt. This technique is fast and fun.

    Virtual Lecture - Improv and Abstractions in Antique Quilts


                                    

    Some of our quilting ancestors were ahead of their time! We are not the first generation of quilters to discover improvisational quilting; but we may be the ones who have embraced it and made it mainstream. In this trunk show, I display antique and vintage quilts that are improvisationally constructed.  So much inspiration and some great lessons can be learned from these graphic and abstract “antiques”.
